Chapter Summary

Success breeds success, and nowhere was this more true than in the Christian-Ottoman conflict of the mid-fifteenth century. For the crusaders, the key to success in 1443 had been to engage the Ottomans before they could mobilize, constantly advancing and denying the Ottomans a chance to regroup and consolidate. The Long March, despite its ultimate failure, had caused a change of heart in the Serenissima was the decision to dispatch a military liaison to the Hungarian court. The Long March gave rise to a whole series of crises. The most significant was Ibrahim Bey's renewed insurrection in Anatolia in February 1444. The necessity of responding to this aggression was the single greatest factor driving the sultan to accept the harsh terms being posed by Hungary in the peace negotiations in Edirne that June.
